I have seen somewhere that you can have 16 km torps instead of the 20 km ....Something that has to do with a Torp Acceleration option or mod....

If one can outfit this boat with 15 km torps....How do i do it.

 

Thank You

If you slap torpedo acceleration onto Asashio you get 5 extra knots in exchange for 4 km less range.

 

IMO it's worth the loss of range.

Reading has become so totally OP that it just had to be nerfed.

I use nothing but on the Asashio. 16 km is enough range to surprise with, and the torp speed seals  the deal.

I still use the stock 20km torps. It's amazing how many hits you get on boats that aren't even spotted.

Back when I first got the Shimakaze, it was too easy to get in trouble with the 20km torps, so 16km and faster was a better choice. because the F3's were too short. The 12km torps were added later to fill that need, and you don't need TA on her anymore.

I see the same thing with the Asashio,  20km torps can get way across the map, and can spend a lot of time in the water for friendlies that are in another time zone to find them. 16km, fast torps go plenty far enough, finish their runs much faster, so they spend less time on the map for a friendly to find.

Running the TA skill on Asashio is one of the best bets, in my opinion. With every cruiser and their mother running hydro these days, shorter ranged and much faster torpedoes are certainly a must when it comes to nuking battleships to oblivion. Also, you can add the new Torpedo module and boost the speed even further, up to 75 knots, and give them literally the stupidest reaction time possible, at just 4.6 seconds

Fun and engaging, amirite )))

Same for me have had some amazing hits over 16km that you did not expect. Really enjoying this destroyer. Had an amazing game last night when i sunk two Thunderer from over 12-15 km range.....they were not happy :cap_haloween:
